Day 1: Nairobi-Aberdares National Park

Arrival in NAIROBI by international flight, Met by our representative, briefed on your safari then depart towards the ABERDARES REGION.

Check in and lunch at the Aberdares Country Club. Transfer by the club vehicle to THE ARK LODGE.

Visit the Chimpanzees at Sweetwaters in the afternoon, later in the afternoon drive back to the lodge for overnight stay. On our journey to the lodge we hope to see typical forest-dwelling animals such as the black and white Colobus Monkeys. A special feature of the lodge where we stay is the floodlit watering hole where we can watch from the lodge itself throughout the night as a great variety of animals come down to drink. Different species of animals are active during the night compared to during the day and many shy species such as rhinos will only approach the lodge at night. It is fascinating to watch their behavior around the watering hole as they take turns in drinking from the watering hole and eating the salt which is put out for them at the ‘Salk Lick. In the morning we hope to have spectacular view towards jagged outline of Mt Kenya. There is also excellent bird watching from the lodge terrace into the surrounding trees. Overnight at your Lodge.

 

Day 2: The Aberdare-Lake Nakuru National Park

This morning we drive across the equator and descend the Nyandarua Escarpment into the Great Rift Valley and visit Thomson Falls. The Valley floor in Kenya is studded with volcanoes and seven lakes. These lakes fluctuate greatly in size according to the quality of the rains during the monsoons each year, sometimes drying up altogether. Arrive in time for lunch. This afternoon we take a game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park often described as the world’s biggest ornithological spectacle. This lake is famous for its flocks of over one million Greater and Lesser Flamingoes. The abundance of these birds is due to the alkaline mineral salts in the water, which support vast blooms of the blue-green algae and diatoms on which the flamingoes feed. As well as seeing many large game animals such as zebras, elephants and gazelles, this is one of our best chances of seeing rhinos. These highly endangered animals are the second largest land animals in the world. Lake Nakuru National Park was the first place in Kenya selected as a rhino reserve. Here is one of the few places where we can see Rothschild’s giraffes. Overnight at the Lodge.

Day 3: Lake Nakuru – Lake Naivasha – Maasai Mara (East)
After a morning game drive, we leave for the Maasai Mara located further south into the Great Rift Valley. The Valley floor in Kenya is studded with volcanoes and seven lakes. These lakes fluctuate greatly in size according to the quality of the rains during the monsoons each year, sometimes drying up altogether. Driving south along the Great Rift Valley we come to Lake Naivasha. Even though this lake is on the floor of the Valley, it is still situated at about 6,200 feet (1,890 meters) above sea level. Naivasha presents a mystery – even though the lake has no apparent outflows, its waters are fresh. The other lakes of the Valley also have only way of losing water, by evaporation, but they are very alkaline. Because it is one of the largest sources of fresh water in Kenya, Lake Naivasha attracts a huge variety of birds in large numbers. It is a bird-watchers’ paradise. After lunch, we make our way to Kenya’s premier wildlife park – the Maasai Mara. This is the northern section of the Serengeti Plain, which is home to the greatest concentration of game animals in the world. Dinner and overnight at the Lodge.

Day 4: Maasai Mara Game Reserve (West)
The vast, open grasslands of the Serengeti-Mara are home to over 3 million large mammals. These include over 1.4 million wildebeest, which migrate in an enormous, straggling herd each year between the southern part of the Serengeti to the northern part and back again. With them move other herbivores such as gazelles and zebra, also looking for the best grass. Along the way they provide food for big predators such as lions, leopards and cheetahs. Here we learn about and see firsthand the intricate web of dependency that binds the different species together. Each animal has adapted to its own niche and to the other animals that surround it. Here we see Nature at its most subtle and, sometimes, most cruel as each animal struggles to survive and reproduce. On our morning and afternoon game drives in the Maasai Mara we have a very good chance of seeing all the major Plains animals including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino, hyena, cheetah, jackal, warthog and many species of antelope. Dinner and overnight at the Lodge.

Day 5: Drive Back to Nairobi and Depart
After breakfast, say ‘Kwaheri’ – a Swahili word for bye to Maasai Mara and leisurely drive back to Nairobi, arriving at around mid-day and in time for lunch at the Carnivore Restaurant. Day rooms have been reserved until 1800 hrs. For your comfort at the city hotel. Optional Dinner at the Carnivore Restaurant – time permitting. Later we transfer you to the airport for your home bound/ departure flight having seen Kenya probably for the first time!
